We were able to visit Black Forest, Colorado to see how God spared Ryan and Melissa’s home from the largest fire in Colorado history. The fire started just blocks away.  They are settled in and are doing great!  Ryan continues in the insurance industry dealing primarily with farmers in northern Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.

Melissa is busy as a book editor, speaking at women conferences and keeping the home fires going. It is so much fun watching the three kids care for a bunch of chickens, goats and other animals. We miss them all!


Recently, Ryan, Melissa. Selah, Gavin and Emery headed to Costa Rica for a short term mission with their local church. Here ore some of their photos.
